It is sad to say, but Old Kowalski is starting to collect dust. Since I got my 2010 BMW F800ST, it has become my main steed.

Why won't my pics show?

Unmitigated risk aversion is the new Puritanism; complete with witch hunts funny outfits and humorless preachers thundering doom. The Deity is Safety; Satan is a Lawyer; but the object is the same: to suck the life out of life and tell you how to live it.

I had 4 Kawasaki's, but sold my 2011 Concours 1400 and my KLR 685 this year. I'm down to only 2 bikes, the 2015 Versys 650 and my 1984 KZ1100R which is in the Dreamcycle Museum for now. Weird with only 1 bike in the garage...

My other ride is my electric 29er trail bike. Depending on the tires you can have alot of fun riding trails and mountain bike runs. The part I like is going up the mountain on this. Its also my city bike,dont like riding the Kawi in the big city. I compromise with the rubber,run all terrain tires.

My other "other ride" is a 2000 Roadtrek 200Versatile camper van. It gets me and the trailer holding a motorcycle to the fun riding areas and is good for boondock camping for two weeks at a time before needing more water and tanks dumped. A person can be a lot more flexible and frugal when looking for spots to camp when you "bring it all with you." Most of my camping is at USFS or BLM dispersed camping areas, at least out west.

I can't think of a better way to see North America. I'm now actually hanging out in it, the A/C went down in the house and it could be a few days to get it repaired with Dorian in the neighborhood, though it pretty much looks like it will be a non event where I live.

My other ride is what I race. It doesn’t handle nearly as good as the V but it does keep a 64 year old man fairly heathy and away from the blood pressure meds.

one is a very well set up adventure touring KLR 685, 08 model with 50k miles on it.
the other is my 2012 concours 14.with 36k miles set up for long haul/rally duty. i bought it as a new leftover in 14 after putting 140k on the previous one

Im enamored of both, and spent LOT of time and money on them getting them to where i wanted them set up.
